Hey guys! Have you heard about our MSF Ambassador Program? If you have, then you know about the awesome benefits of it. If you haven’t, let me take a brief second to explain. Every year, we chose 10 people with MS to become MSF Ambassadors. It is a volunteer-based program where we train those with MS to learn to be an advocate for themselves, the MS Community, as well as informing others about the services of the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. MSF Ambassadors hold fundraisers, distribute information to doctor’s offices, and participate in MSF Educational Programs in their area. We seriously have an awesome group of ambassadors, so we wanted to take the time on our blog to highlight them. Recently, we asked them six questions about themselves and throughout the weeks we will be presenting them. So without further adieu, please let me introduce Jeanna Waldroup, ThD from North Carolina.

Six Questions with Jeanna Waldroup, ThD

Jeanne Waldroup is a MSF Ambassador who holds both a Master of Theology and a Doctorate of Theology. She lives in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina with her husband and two children.

1. How has MS changed your life? Multiple sclerosis has given me the opportunity to see life in a new way. In other words, don’t sweat the small stuff! I have learned to face the challenges of the disease with the support and love of my family. I have two favorite sayings: ‘Attitude is Everything’ and ‘Never Give Up.’”

2. What is the most important thing you’ve learned since your diagnosis? To hold each day as the special gift that it is.

3. How have you found support? My family and friends at church are always there to help me. They offer me encouragement, prayers, and are always concerned for how I’m feeling. They are the greatest.

4. What is the best coping tip you’ve picked up? Power naps!! If I need to rest, I do. When I wake up from a good nap I feel energized to continue on with my day and enjoy my family.

5. What is your favorite MS-or health related website? Msfocus.org, of course!

6. This is the bonus question! What question would you like to ask our readers? What is the most bothersome symptom related to your MS?

Your answer?
I actually can only narrow it down to two. They are fatigue and burning feet. I would love to have just one day where my feet wouldn’t burn like they are on fire!
